Good Friday recalled @ Pushpashrama
“High on two logs hangs a figure in isolation, whose shadow saves all the people of sin’s desperation.”

The Friday of the holy week marks the most important day of our faith. It is a reminiscence of the greatest sacrifice ever offered, the magnitude and intensity of which is impossible for the human minds to grasp. Therefore to illustrate the passion of our Lord in his road to Calvary, the Community of Pushpashrama organized the presentation of the Way of the Cross at 8: 30 AM through an act in which every station of the cross was deeply reflected and pondered on. The realistic portrayal of Jesus, his suffering and the various difficulties and people he met on the way were depicted and presented by the brothers with the active collaboration of the people. A huge number of people turned up for this event and the act culminated in Jesus being taken to the sepulcher, the total duration of which was approximately one and a half hour. The people who participated were moved to tears by the actual description of the way of the cross. After the event, the people were provided Buttermilk.

The holy ceremony of Good Friday began at 5: 00 PM; the sober act in which the celebration was of bare minimum i.e. the Church music was simple and prayerful. The ceremony was presided by Fr. Pradeep Pinto. Fr. Oswald Crasta preached meaningfully on the wounds of Jesus which provided an insight to the sufferings of Jesus. Various prayers were held for the needs of the Church and the Holy Cross was venerated. Later Communion was distributed and the people were asked to depart to their homes in silence.
